** LOW CARB SMOOTHIE 15 DAYS 15 LBS DETOX **

So I think I will try a 15 day low carb smoothie diet.
My friend did this to shed 15 lbs in 15 days before her wedding & it will satisfy my PMS/TOM cravings & give me a break from eating meat.

I will post my 15 day progress results. Goal is to lose 15 lbs by Aug 30.

*Aug 1 - 200 lbs
*Aug 5 - 195 lbs
*Aug 7 - 191.8
*Aug 9 - 192
*Aug 10 – 191
*Aug 15 - 196 *PMS
Goal = 181 by Aug 30 (15 day smoothie detox)

more info needed

For your detox, do you drink only these every day, or only for breakfast? I am interested also because of my DD upcoming wedding.
thanks

Just 3 shakes a day...breakfast, lunch & dinner.

For liquid base use almond or coconut milk that is unsweetened (2g carbs)
Whey protein from Target (4g carbs)
Frozen fruit & fresh spinach (4g carbs max)

Each shake should be 10g carb max & about 330 calories.
1000 calories a day & 30g carbs a day.

I'm going to thrown one of these in soon, sounds easy to pre make and take along too. Probably mixed with protein whey isolate so there's minimal carbs and a lil hwc for fat.

Just had my first one with one scoop of body fortress vanilla creme whey protein isolate, 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, and about 2 tbsp hwc shaken in my blender bottle. Best tasting protein shake ever, with 1 carb.

Well I cheated a little...had a 100 calorie (4g carb) almond snack pack.
I still think the smoothies are a welcome break from eating meats.

Can you see the difference? can you tell that you are losing all the weight or is it just on the scale?

Yes. My clothes are fitting looser and I can see the silhouette of my former bikini body fighting to come out when I am in my undies.

I made it to 184, just 4 lbs away from my 180 Sept goal, but my pants are looser, my legs slimmer & my waist line is more defined! I am back to induction, but will switch back to low carb chocolate smoothie shakes during TOM.

wow! Great results!! I'm going to try this to detox by body for weight loss! My wedding is in 8 months and I need to get into shape fast!

Im curious though .. how do you get 330 calories each?

Spinach - 1 carb - 8 cals
1/2 cup raspberries - 3 carbs - 35 cals
whey protein - 2 carbs - 120 cals
almond milk - 2 carbs - 45 cals

around 210 ..am I missing something?

this sounds interesting! i have a Nutribullet and i miss my green smoothies. I've been looking for a way to incorporate them into a LC plan. looks like i need to stick to small portions of berries instead of the fruit smorgasbord i used to dump in them

I use frozen fruit (get them in packets from Target). These have less preservatives, plus you can accurately measure the carb count.

My favorite is the frozen raspberry/blueberry blend.

So far I am on track to reaching my goals & losing 10-15 lbs a month!

Switching to a "Smoothie Diet" (only smoothies 3x a day, with 20g carbs max) is a nice alternative to eating meats or other foods on the Atkins plan.

I add 1 or 2 slices of avocado (about 1" each) to all my smoothies, since they are a superfood & great at helping to flush fat out of your system. They have natural fats!

You can also make a low carb chocolate mousse by purée 1/2 avocado & add unsweetened cocoa powder & stevia. serving size is about 1/2 cup

** Raw Green Smoothie Detox **

** Raw Green Smoothie Detox **

I will now have to work twice as hard, since it has been a while since my body has been in the 160s (circa 2008...before having kids), so now I have to push it to lose weight.

I may switch things up a little and do "Raw Green Smoothie Detox". (low carb fruits and veggie smoothies, various combinations, water base or coconut water base...no food, no coffee, just smoothies...about 30g max carbs per day.) *google or check Yummly for green smoothie recipes

I has worked FOR ME in the past (drop about 4 lbs in 4 days). It just resets your system, gives you energy and glowing skin!

I will give it until the end of the week if the scale does not move below 165.
